In testing for Windchill 11, I had IT install IE 11.
In an external web browser, I have no issues with IE 11 and Windchill 10.
In the embedded Creo browser, I cannot get the workspace to load.
Is there a work around for this condition?
Some setting in IE11 that will force it to behave like IE 8 or 9?
I can capture the long runing script errors and post later, if needed.
One of the reason may be you are using IE 11 in Enterprise mode.
IE11 Enterprise mode is not supported with Windchill 11.0, so need to change it to Edge Mode. Check with your IT Team for same and ask them to exclude Windchill URL from Enterprise mode.
Refer PTC CS218340 for more details.
Compatibility mode works fine for IE11 on an external browser.
My issues is with the internal Creo browser which does not work with IE11!
Doesn't help, I am on WC 10.0 m040 with my testing to get us to WC11 m030. No time to do an upgrade within the 10.x range of Windchill.
Internet Explorer 11 as a embedded browser:
I believe you are using Creo 2 due to which you are facing an issues here.
I am running Creo 2 m220 on Windows 7 64bit.
I have no issues with IE 11 as an external browser for Windchill 10.0 m040.
I do get script errros when I open a workspace in the embedded browser.
Is there a setting in IE11 that will work with Windchill10.0?
officially IE 11 is not supported with Windchill 10.0 https://support.ptc.com/WCMS/files/124477/en/Windchill10.0M050SoftwareMatrices030414.pdf.
I am not sure how it is running for standalone browser on your server.
Are you getting this script error on embedded browser?
An error has occurred in the script on this page.
Error: Invalid argument.
I am aware that IE11 is not supportted, but I needed it to test Windchill 11.
Caught between 2 systems is a pain.
I get 6 script errors when I open a workspace in the embedded browser.
Error: Object doesn't support property or method 'addEventListener'
Error: Unable to get property 'prototype' of undefined or null reference
Error: 'FALSE_FUNC' is undefined
Error:Unable to set property '_initializeCache' of undefined or null reference
Error:Unable to get property 'override' of undefined or null reference
Error:Unable to get property 'setConsoleInterval' of undefined or null reference
I select Yes on all these messages and then I get a blank workspace area with a spinning cog wheel at the top.
See if this works
You can change a browser type in your Creo config properties file.
It seems that IE 11 is suportted on Creo2, according to the Hardware notes.
IE 11.0 is supported on Creo 2.0 M100 and later on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10.
Now I just have to get the right IE11 settings!
What is your option for windows_browser_type in config.pro, in my config.pro
windows_browser_type = ie_in_sep_process and I don't have any problem.
And I added two rows in my bat file, it looks next way:
"C:\PTC\Creo 2.0\Parametric\bin\parametric.exe" "C:\PTC\Creo 2.0\Parametric\bin\Creo2-Flex3C.psf" %*
I had the same issue when upgrading from Win 7 to Win 10 with Windchill 10.1 M030 .Here is what works for me.
Change embedded browser option to be Either Moxilla or Chromium.
Use the configuration option windows_browser_type to specify the web
browser engine used in the Creo browser.
"windows_browser_type" should be changed to 'mozilla_based_browser' or 'chromium_browser'.
